The Lake County Coalition is among 30 organizations in Florida established by state legislation to administer the School Readiness and Voluntary Program in Lake County, Florida. The Coalition provides a variety of innovative early learning services to Lake County families including, child care resource and referral services, subsidized child care assistance and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program eligibility services. Child care services are offered to children ranging from birth to age five, as well as after school programs for children to age twelve.
The Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring high-quality early education and care for children in Citrus, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy, and Sumter Counties. Through a community-based collaborative approach, we are committed to promoting high quality early learning, advocating on behalf of children and preparing every child for success in both school and life.
The Early Learning Coalition of Marion County, Inc. began operations as the Marion County School Readiness Coalition, Inc. in 1999 when Florida legislature created School Readiness Coalitions through F.S. 411.01 (currently F.F. Chapter 1002.51-1002.97). The purpose of the Coalitions state-wide is to ensure that children at risk of academic failure are provided the tools and resources to assist them in being prepared to enter school, and eligible low-income working parents can access quality child care. The Coalition serves as a community-based planning, funding, and service coordinating organization that designs and manages an integrated system of early learning services. The Florida Office of Early Learning (FOEL) is charged with administering the state’s early learning programs and provides oversight of Florida’s School Readiness programs and is the lead entity for implementing the state’s Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program. The Agency’s vision for Florida is “Children Ready to Learn, Families Ready to Earn.”

The Family Empowerment Scholarship (FES) Program is one of Florida’s greatest victories for low-income and working-class families, and it is the first of its kind to extend support to middle-income families. Following the 2019 Legislative Session, Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 7070, which creates the FES Program and provides 18,000 students life-changing education opportunities for academic and career success.
The name honors Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner, who led the legislative effort to create the program, and his family. The Gardiner Scholarship is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.
In 2018, the Florida Legislature created the Hope Scholarship Program to give public school children in Florida relief from bullying and violence.

The McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program provided over 20,500 Florida students with special needs the opportunity to attend a participating private school during the current school year.

The program provides Tax Credit Scholarships to students in K-12 who come from low-income families. This scholarship allows the student to consider a private school when they might not otherwise have the opportunity.
